Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Heat Advisory  Statement as of 4:03 am CDT on August 20, 2014


... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a heat
advisory... which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT
Saturday.

* Temperatures will begin to clim well into the 90s over the next
several days as high pressure aloft builds north from the Gulf
Coast region. These temperatures will combine with rather muggy
conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to
105 or so several days in a row.

* The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will
create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take
extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
355 am CDT Wed Aug 20 2014 


Discussion...(today through tuesday) 
issued at 341 am CDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Main weather story will be the developing heat wave across the 
region as h50 ridge builds northward from the Gulf Coast region. 
As this ridge expands and temps aloft warm, the daily chances for 
convection will lower to isolated at best. Based on local criteria 
of 100 to 105 heat indices for 4 or more consecutive days, will go 
ahead and pop a heat advisory area wide with this package. Will 
run it for this afternoon through Saturday afternoon. However, 
will likely continue beyond Sat, as that blocking upper ridge will 
be in no hurry to break down. Welcome to summer's first extended 
heat wave.

Other than patchy late night/early morning MVFR/IFR fog, expect 
high pressure to bring VFR conditions to all sites during this taf
